For many animation fans GKIDS has become an important player in the animated film landscape. Each year we eagerly await the indie and anime films they are releasing and they rarely disappoint. Their latest release comes out on May 11th and is called Lu Over the Wall.
GKIDS gave the following synopsis for the film:
From visionary director Masaaki Yuasa comes a joyously hallucinogenic but family friendly story of Lu a young musically gifted mermaid who unexpectedly joins Kai and his friends’ band. The talented but adrift Kai bonds with the spirited Lu but their friendship is at odds in a town where it is believed that mermaids bring disaster. An official selection of Sundance 2018, Lu Over the Wall is a toe-tapping, feel-good demonstration of Yuasa’s genre-mixing mastery that will leave you humming long after you leave the theater.
